This uniquely flavored, mildly hopped pale ale gets its citrusy, some say minty, character from a relatively new American hop variety, Glaciers. If our Paleolithic ancestors brewed beer during the Ice Age, we are certain this would have been their hop of choice.

On tap at Boscos in Memphis. Pours a golden color, clear. Good lacing. Has some hoppy aroma, citrus. The taste is very good and balanced between the malts and hops. Smooth drink.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Location: Draft at Little Rock Brewpub, 3/6/12

Aroma: The aroma has some light citrus hops and pale/crystal malty type notes
Appearance: It pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head and good lacing
Flavor: The taste fairly balanced between the light malty sweetness and the light-medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body of this one is light-medium, with a clean feel and an average carbonation to it
Overall Impression: This was a pretty solid and drinkable pale ale. I don’t know if it was the name or a real affect, but it did have sort of a "cooling" feel to it.

A pretty, gold beer with loads of lacing. Lack of malt leaves the mouthfeel a little lacking, but the mint finish is clean and refreshing. Tasty overall.

Gallon jug, smuggled by a friend :) poured out an attractive orange-gold with a thin white head that lasted the glass and left good lacing throughout. Aroma was citrus and floral. Taste was a nice sweet/sour fruit mix, a lime after-bite was unexpected but pleasant. Palate was as expected from an IPA, light and refreshing. Very enjoyable.

Cold hoppy aroma, flavor has a wonderful iciness to it, almost mint. Really interesting, and not a violent bitting bitterness. This is very drinkable.
